Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 38
Mon. 19th. Regimental drill all day & had a fairly rough time of it. Idleboy has been lame since Friday, & I rode Nelsons mare to-day & found her to be as rough as it is possible to get them. We were drilling on the desert; arrived back in Camp before 3 oclock. After tea Pitt & I had a game of billiards & then put in half an hour at a concert that was given as a send off to Mr. Bell who is connected with the Y.M.C.A. here.
